    When running my MacBook locked at 1.83GHz 1.0V. My Mac is not only cooler ,as it should be, but it also feels "snappier".
    So I did some runs in Xbench comparing the original driver to CoolBook.
    The results were 15% higher Quartz graphics test, and 25% higher User interface test. Can anyone verify this positive "side effect"?

    Makes sense.. if you're limiting the CPU voltage, it'll generate less heat.. less heat=less down-throttling, and the video card can go faster.

    Having said that, I don't own any mac laptop, so take it all with a grain of salt...
